Words of Advice
I could choose to be ill and unhappy, or ill for now, and happy. This state of mind got me out of relapse faster than any pill I could have popped. ...- give yourself time and love and be gentle with your body – pace yourself. Accept what is for now. And most of all, try to find your spiritual core, in whatever way works for you.
